Strange But True

Who isn’t fascinated by the world of the weird? These stories are the ultimate in high-interest reading. The people, places, and things in these story collections range from the peculiar to the preposterous, from creepy to utterly terrifying, from the odd to the awful. Yet, all are based on eyewitness accounts or the solid scholarship of serious investigators.
